I worked at Zone 24x7 as an Associate Research Assistant. The project was an collaborative project between Zone24x7 and University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka and Deakin University, Australia. It was first of its kind in Sri Lanka as the objective of the project was to test the feasibility of state-of-the-art Machine Learning techniques to solve real world problems. The project was to identify business value of monitoring retail equipment status. And then use automated analysis and machine learning techniques to extract useful information about correlations and infer reasons behind equipment failures.

I was privileged to collaborate with WSO2 for
GSOC 2015. This gave me an opportunity
to use my research in a real world problem.

Working with WSO2 for GSOC 2015 was indeed a great learning and joyful experience for me. WSO2 is one of the pioneers in the open-source world and is a world-class Software Conglomerate. In this project I worked with one of their blossoming open-source product called WSO2 Machine Learner (WSO2-ML). My project specifically was to integrate Deep Learning to WSO2-ML. Deep Learning is a highly-recognized frontier in Machine Learning due to the ample breakthroughs it made in various domains. Being a graduate student working specifically in the field of Deep Learning, this was an ideal opportunity for me to fuse my knowledge with industrial professionals to produce something amazing. My project consisted of 3 main components. They are,
  • Find a reliable and promising Java Deep Learning library
  • Integrate it to WSO2-ML and configure the library correctly while giving user the freedom for basic configurations
  • Visualize the deep network during the set-up
